Traditional or modern approach

Of all the different types of rings, a diamond engagement ring is the most special ring you will ever buy. An engagement between two people forms a special bond, and only the most beautiful diamond rings are fit for engagements. When it comes to picking out diamond engagement rings, the difficulty lies in finding the perfect diamond ring for your future wife without her helping you to choose. Some people prefer to take on a more modern approach and pick out the engagement ring together as a couple to make finding the perfect diamond engagement ring easier. Other couples take it even further and have the woman pick out her own diamond engagement ring. Whichever way seems best for you as a couple, the following tips will help you find the perfect diamond engagement ring.

Picking the perfect diamond

Diamond Engagement Ring

The first and most important step when buying diamond engagement rings is choosing the type of diamond. Understanding the 4Cs –

carat, clarity, color, and cut – will help you to understand the four most important characteristics of a diamond and how they determine the price. Perhaps the easiest way to begin is to first decide on a diamond cut, more commonly referred to as diamond shape. There are many different diamond shapes to choose from, each with their own beauty and appeal. The Round Brilliant Cut has the optimum brilliance and fire and has set the standard for all other cuts. This is the most popular shape for diamond engagement rings. However, for those couples that want a slightly more modern engagement ring, the Princess Cut is the perfect choice as it has a modern square outline with brilliance similar to a round diamond.

Buying diamond engagement rings the smart way

The best way to buy diamond engagement rings is to buy loose diamonds at wholesale prices and have them mounted separately. Buying GIA certified loose diamonds at wholesale prices will get you the quality you want at a much better price. With the same budget, you will be able to buy a higher quality diamond because by reducing middlemen and retail margins from the purchasing process. Having your diamond mounted separately gives you even more control over the budget as you decide which type of stone to go on the design you prefer – a 2 carat VVS1 D color diamond will look almost the same as a 2 carat VS1 E color diamond. Diamond prices jump at every full carat making the difference between a 2.8 carat and a 3.2 carat diamond something worth to consider. On a final note: the closer you buy to the source, the smarter your purchase.
